The New Constitutional Monarchy of The Islands of Tonga is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Kalasia Tupou IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 887 million Tongans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nukuʻalofa. The average income tax rate is 62.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Tongan economy, worth 103 trillion Tola 'as a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,839 Tola 'as, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

It's never "just a game" with a Tongan sports fans, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Islands of Tonga's national animal is the Pacific golden plover, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Islands of Tonga is ranked 50,592nd in the world and 2,461st in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 170,419.64 Standard Monetary Units.
